“It is a tremendous honour to join the AGM at this moment in its distinguished history. The gallery's impressive history of exhibitions, collections and outreach initiatives drew me to the city. I am looking forward to engaging with this community and the opportunity to work with the gallery's dedicated core of volunteers, staff, board members and stakeholders, along with the joys and challenges this position will bring. The AGM is a gem and important contributor to the national visual arts community in that reflects the vibrant and inclusive nature of both Mississauga and our country.” – Mandy Salter
